The Bamaga IKC story is one of opportunity and transformation. From humble beginnings, the IKC opened on the same day as Umagico IKC - 25 May 2012.
Bamaga IKC initially operated from a small room in a building shared with Home and Community Care (HACC) services, on the outskirts of town. Despite its small size, the IKC offered a full range of services and included adult and children’s collections, a kids’ corner and a public access computer hub.
Over the years, the IKC was moved to larger premises as building spaces became available. In 2019, the IKC moved to its current location in the centre of the Bamaga community. A refurbishment of the space was completed in 2021 through a partnership between the Northern Peninsula Area Regional Council (NPARC) and the State Library of Queensland.
The Bamaga IKC is one of five IKCs operated by the NPARC in partnership with the State Library of Queensland. The IKCs are located at Injinoo, New Mapoon, Seisia and Umagico.
